Planning
Operating rolling stock is a capital-intensive business, which should have a long-term focus.

Procurement
Procuring rolling stock is extremely complex and absorbs time and resources.

Development
Developing solutions that integrate all relevant technical, safety and comfort related requirements, with no need for re-adjustments to manufacture can be tremendously demanding.

Manufacture
Failure to supervise manufacturing and assembly processes can lead to faults, scheduling problems and cost overruns.

Homologation
Obtaining homologation for new rail vehicles from authorities requires extensive stationary and on-track tests to verify safety and passenger comfort.

Operation & Maintenance
The ever-increasing pressure on costs, leads to the need of continuous improvement processes to reduce vehicle failure and minimise required reserves.

Modernisation
Even if older rolling stock has been well-maintained, it may not fulfil current standards. Although often cheaper than buying new vehicles, updating existing ones can be challenging.
